Robert Michael Dooley, 59, passed away on Oct. 16, 2012. Robert, known as Mike, was born on July 11, 1953. Mike attended Drake University to earn a bachelor of arts in history.
He loved to read about history and he often used it to make sense of the world. He loved his horse Rosemary. He was a storyteller and made everyone around him laugh. He never spoke out of anger and hardly ever raised his voice. His sudden and early passing will leave a void in many lives, but memories of him will serve to fill that hole with joy and laughter.
